Would electrons cease revolving around the atom at this temperature?

Well, The lovely R-II district taught me that everything stops at absolute zero.
They also taught me to take the time to open all the windows in a tornado and to close the windows if there was a fire.

The definition of absolute zero is defined as 0.0 K on the Kelvin scale. It is theoretically possible, but may only be present in black holes or deep empty space. Of course, some theorize it is an impossible asymptote. I personally think it can exist, whether it does or not naturally. I also think that it is connected with the space-time continuum as a “breach” in that continuum. Once we can master the properties of matter at absolute zero, then we could actually manipulate time itself.( I really must stop watching the Sy-Fy and History Channels)

Do you just post every random thought that crashes into the back of your cerebrum.

Too complicated for me. Sometimes I think that my brain is at absolute zero.

I did enjoy the History Channel when it had something educational. But anymore, it is mostly Pawn Stars and Swamp People.

What is an "asymptote"?

So the motion of the electron spinning around the atom is not affected in any way by the temperature of absolute zero?

It really isn’t that complicated. When it comes to temperature, we gauge it with degrees of “heat” units. Kelvin predicted the theory that at “absolute zero” is when matter is so cold, that there is no energy at all and the entire atom freezes including the electron and then it collapses in on itself.

An asymptote is the absolute (mathematical) that is unobtainable, but continually approachable. For example, if the speed of light is a constant and the greatest speed possible, then getting matter to accelerate faster and faster but never achieving the speed of light would be like approaching an asymptote. In the same example, we could theoretically cause matter to get colder and colder by removing the heat, but never actually achieve absolute zero Kelvin temperature.

I believe if we could, that would be the metaphoric “Event Horizon” of the possibility of time “disruption” that could lead to greater understanding of the relativity of time. After that, it could then theoretically lead to time travel. Ironically, I do have an experiment that can test the validity of my theory, but it would take a few years and perhaps a couple of billion dollars.

I don't know who you are or what you do for a living, but I love to read you posts. You encourage me to dig deeper and to question. Thank you Mrs Brauhman.

Don’t worry about misspelling my pseudonym. I’m flattered by your response. I hope I don’t disappoint in the future. I just voice opinion, not dogma.
